When responding to a call to attend any tournament there are a few things to remember before and during the day prior to donning your white gloves.
The table must be brushed clean of residual chalk and dust and the nap of the cloth must be laid as flat as possible to aid the true running of the balls. To brush the table, ensure that each stroke of the brush is in the direction of the nap, that is to say towards the top cushion and starting from the Baulk, with each stroke as straight as possible...
Only the striker may concede and only in a situation which requires the gaining of penalty points.
Now it must be said at the outset that the rulebook does use the words ‘when snookers are needed’.
If the game is at a stage when all reds have been cleared from the table and one player is 28 points in arrears then it would be understood that one snooker is required. However, if one snooker were successfully laid and the opponent were to manage an escape then another one would also be required.
